MUSIC & ARTISTS:

BLASTROMEN (LIVE)

Blastromen is a Finnish electronic music duo, founded in 2003 by Mika Rosenberg and Sami Koskivaara. Their music is a mix of old school electro, synthesizer music, modern techno and synthwave that salutes the past and greets the future. Blastromen's musical themes drift between futuristic landscapes and sci-fi, where complex and accurate modern production methods, catchy melodies and vocoder singing makes their music unique.

Blastromen does not only make music but they produce and make music videos, high quality live videos and tour the world with their unique LED light show.

The duo had a monotechno band called AM but decided to change their musical style to more electro influenced direction and the futuristic band Blastromen was then formed. Soon, in year 2004 the first 12" EP vinyl Robot Aggression was released on a Finnish record label, X0X Records. Since then Blastromen has released the second EP called Blasteroids and two studio albums called Human Beyond (2010) and Reality Opens (2014) on Dominance Electricity record label.

From the first release, Blastromen has been a popular name in electro genre worldwide and has played live in several events in Finland, Germany, USA, Spain and Russia to name a few. Their live performance has developed over the years into a unique show that includes custom-built LED light poles and suits that have been programmed to interactively follow the music.

In July 2018 Blastromen finally released their third album called Cyberia and they are ready to tour the Europe once more.

KASHMIR & KOSHER (LIVE)
Kashmir & Kosher are mystical hermit-salesmen who met each others while roaming the Silk road in the Ladakh region. They were both travelling to the city of Srinagar to trade high quality cashmere wool and Kosher comestibles. Since their agenda was homologous, they decided to join forces in their mission.

MIKKO HEIKINPOIKA (LIVE)

Mikko Heikinpoika is a throat singer, multi-instrumentalist and a music producer from Finland. He is a part of the new wave of live musicians who by the means of live looping and vocal layering, merge organic and electronic music together and takes his audience on a wild ride of live energy. His music could be called Global Bass with strong Nordic and Siberian vibes. Rooted, tribal rhythms and ancient vocal techniques with live electronics. He is also very involved with the Ecstatic Dance scene, both as a facilitator and a performer.

To get depth into his music, he has been travelling to Tuva to study the art of throat singing. In 2015 he competed on a throat singing festival, called "Khoomei in the Center of Asia" and came in third place in the modern category. In 2018 he participated on the international throat singing symposium,
also held at Tuva, and won the prize: “Best Avant-garde Performance”.

“I experienced Mikko Heikinpoika by chance on a festival in Finland during the summer of 2014. The deeply shamanic and ancient sound of his voice pulled me in. I was then taken
on an incredible journey through looping and layering vocals, instruments and electronic trickery, bridging the worlds of tribal past with present day electronics. I have been keeping up with his evolution over the last years and the more I hear, the more I feel, not only the depth and evolution of his music, but the importance of this music as a way to connect with our future ancient past.”

-Yaegon aka: Kalya Scintilla/Merkaba-

MONKEY BUSINESS

Aapeli Kähärä aka Monkey Business is a newbie in electronic music but enthusiast about it. He has always been doing music in some form (saxophone, drums, mouth) and latest add is dj´ing, since 2017.

He is an energetic fellow and plays dark progressive / zenon(esque) the most, but is eager to break genre boundaries and find not-so-often played tracks to surprise the dancefloor.. So music can range from techno to suomisaundi to hitech, depending on venue/demands. Dark and groovy from South-America has been the latest thing for him and he really wants to push music from that area more to Finland and rest of the world!

 

PIJALL (LIVE)

He is back, from the future est 90 to rescue philosophy courses in hip-hop. Do not mention him in bragging writings but in simple stuff like life quotes. His styles varies from slow motion to uptempo rhythmic dance of vocal transportation. I hop off here by saying if you are interested in seeking silence, he just might be your guide.

STRÖM (LIVE)

Ström started operating behind the decks in the late 90s, and by doing so played in some of the most legendary bars and ug parties around Helsinki. He then moved on to form a psy-trance group Troll Scientists, which relesed three albums and toured extensively in Russia and Europe. Since then he has been releasing music under his own name and organising fine dining x techno nights.

DJ USHVALON

·

Dj Ushvalon plays different kinds of experimental music that is meant to move the listener, both physically and mentally.

Without the darkness there can be no light, and in the music I play, the message of those words can be felt. From a moment that is uplifting, touching or beautiful, the course of the musical journey can change out of the blue, to the dark depths of the mind and back again.

The sets can be thought of and felt as journeys within ourselves, and I hope that the listener can always come back with a little something for themselves and the rest of the world, whatever it may be.

My name is Miika Laurila. I have collected music from around 2007, and played on stage since 2014. I hope that you'll find my sets inspiring or intriguing, and that they can help you with your life as a human being in any way.

"Without The Dark, We'd Never See The Stars"

SOUNDS:

SALAMARI SOUND SYSTEM
– a heatwave behind the soundwise guidance

”Our sound system was built four years ago in a desperate lack of a proper actively running sound in the area of Kanta-Häme. Founder of the sound, Joona Venäläinen, was constantly getting more and more interested in the sound design and the air motion that we hear as a sound, that has the power of moving mountains and breaking the barriers. We wanted to experience music as a physical thing, just like we had had the chance to experience it during the past years in the dances and parties organized by other sound systems.

Our mission is to offer a customly designed and built high quality sound for the real experience in music and in all of its frequencies. Things that might move us and our thoughts, change our perspectives and alter our consciousness in a spectacular way that nothing else can compete.

We feel that the rythm and the music exists to unite people and vibes and the mighty Salamari Sound System is our teaching tool to complish that task in a way like we feel it should be done.

We create the sound.”
